Marble Hall Rugs – $1,000
We want to make a great first impression and the Marble Hallway is your first sight as you enter the Mansion. Rugs protect the marble floor and add aesthetics to the entryway.

Guest Room Key Cards – $1,500 per room (41)
Guest rooms currently have a lock and key. Upgrading to a key card will be more convenient and secure for our guests.

These elegant Mahogany Resin Chairs will help take Allerton’s weddings, banquets, and special events to the next level, providing a much-needed functional and aesthetic addition to the historic Allerton Mansion.

Library Blinds – $7,000
We are getting three sets of new blinds for the LARGE Library doors to replace the current ones that are falling down and unable to open and close.
